Random Selections: There Is Hope (J. C. Ryle)

This random selection (odd page, final paragraph) is from J. C. Ryle’s Expository Thoughts on the Gospels (Matthew 21:23–32).


Let it be a settled principle in our Christianity that the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is infinitely willing to receive penitent sinners.—It matters nothing what a man has been in time past. Does he repent, and come to Christ? Then old things are passed away, and all things are become new.—It matters nothing how high and self-confident a man’s profession of religion may be. Does he really give up his sins? If not, his profession is abominable in God’s sight, and he himself is still under the curse.—Let us take courage ourselves, if we have been great sinners hitherto: only let us repent and believe in Christ, and there is hope. Let us encourage others to repent; let us hold the door wide open to the very chief of sinners. Never will that word fail, ‘If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us the sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness’ (1 John 1:9).

—J. C. Ryle, Expository Thoughts on Matthew (Banner of Truth, 2012), 220.
